Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday morning inaugurated new Defence Ministry workplaces in Delhi and, as he did so, he took a swipe at the competition over the contentious Central Vista project. He accused critics of the formidable RS.20,000 crore project – which will incorporate constructing a brand new Parliament and important authorities workplaces,

In addition to the refurbishment of the North and South Blocks – of worrying more about “private agendas” than the situation of key authorities, places of work and ministries. “We all saw how some people tried to sabotage the important Central Vista project. how they ran personal agendas to spread misinformation. But not once did they speak about the condition of these hutments.from where our ministries work. Not once did they mention the new Defence Ministry complexes and how crucial they are,” the Prime Minister declared.

The Central Vista project has been condemned, with the opposition asking the need to spend thousands of crores on government buildings during the pandemic. The old offices – around 700 huts spread over 50 acres – will be redeveloped to house a new ‘Executive Enclave’, which will include a new residence for the Prime Minister. “It always surprised me that the Defence Ministry, like some others, was run from World War II-era huts... these were made keeping horses and stables in mind. I always wondered how such important ministries were being run from old, dilapidated hutments...”

He said. “This is a big step towards the construction of a modern Defence Ministry enclave in the capital; which will further strengthen our efforts to make the working conditions of our armed forces more convenient and more effective,” Prime Minister Modi declared. The Central Vista challenge has generated big controversy and criticism, with critics and competition leaders wondering whether they want to spend hundreds of crores on authorities' homes rather than spending it on vaccine improvement and distribution or scaling up fitness infrastructure.

Other criticisms of the undertaking vary from its effect on Delhi's inexperienced cowl to the destruction of a number of the city's maximum traditionally massive landmarks. The authorities have brushed off all criticism, insisting that the undertaking was conceived in September 2019 (earlier than the pandemic) and that no old homes can be demolished. The Central Vista was also challenged in the Supreme Court, in June, saying it would not interfere in a Delhi High Court order allowing some construction to proceed despite the pandemic.
